Wayne Rooney scored for Manchester United during their 2-1 defeat against Tottenham on Sunday afternoon – and fans on Twitter have slated the 31-year-old.
The Premier League clash at White Hart Lane was the final game to be played at Spurs’ old stadium as they recorded all three points.
Midfielder Victor Wanyama opened the scoring early in the first half when he rose above Rooney to head home.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side dominated the match and then went on to add a second after the break when striker Harry Kane converted a Christian Eriksen cross.
However, striker Rooney then found the back of the net against the run of play as many fans were hoping that he was not the last goalscorer at WHL.
Unfortunately for them, he was but more importantly the last game at WHL resulted in a Tottenham win.
One fan mocked the former England captain by claiming he is “stealing a living” following his performance against Spurs.
Others were focusing on his attempt to deal with the brilliant cross from Ben Davies which led to Wanyama’s goal.

Over the course of the season, Rooney has played 36 games in all competitions, scoring seven goals added with his ten assists.
He has played only 23 Premier League matches this term as injuries and the preference to play the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic have seen his game time reduced.
During those matches, he has only started 13 encounters, with five of those matches coming during the first five games of the season.
